Hey guys and happy Thursday! I know I haven’t been blogging much lately, but being in a new town and writing for a living are taking a toll on my blogging. I also keep leaving my camera at home so I don’t have many interesting pictures lately.
This weekend I’m going out of town for my sister-in-law’s wedding reception, so I’m sure a lot of photos will be taken and you’ll get a nice little review of the weekend as well as a race review (since I’ll be close to my former hometown, I signed up for a 5K race early Saturday morning). Plus, if it’s anything like my wedding reception, there will be tons of awesome presents, food, and goodies, so should be pretty cool.
… to be super excited I got my Google Analytics article published in the ACS Technologies E-News. I even printed out a copy for my parents and my mom said she enjoyed reading it (although the “About the author” biography was the only part she completely understood…). You can read the article here.
… to feel thankful I don’t have to venture out into the back to school traffic much. School started on Wednesday here, and this morning and was backed up for miles near my house. Fortunately, working from home, I have no commute. Clay’s had to adjust by going in earlier or later at his job.
… to watch preseason NFL football even when my husband isn’t watching it! We’re more excited for Gamecock football but preseason is neat too (I don’t favor a particular NFL team).
… to think “Honey Boo Boo” will probably be in therapy for years with all the attention she’s getting from the TLC channel and her new show. Why is it even called “The Learning Channel” anyway?
… to appreciate Amazon Prime 2-day shipping and any website offering free shipping just because it means you don’t have to venture into “Construction Zone” to go to some stores. No lie, signs on the roads here say “Thank you for visiting Construction Land!” and “Welcome to Construction Land!”
… to savor a little piece of biscotti with your morning coffee. I love coffee, but biscotti makes it that much better (especially dunking it!)
… to buy your husband a new Carolina Gamecocks hoody to thank him for fixing the washing machine himself! He fixed the leaky hose thanks to research and only spent $20. So much better than buying a whole new washer, and I love having a handyman around!
… to eat Chobani Champions “Honey-nana” kids yogurts and think they’re better than other yogurts. I might not be a kid, but I have good taste.
… to buy folders, storage boxes, and other school/office supplies and get super excited even though you’re not going back to school.
… to see pictures of college move-in and read about it on Facebook, then feel kinda sad that you’re not going back to college.
Have a great Thursday! I’ll be back soon with a real blog.
Q1.) Do you order online a lot, or would you rather shop in a store? I really like ordering some things online, like printer ink or k-cup coffees that I know I like. Things like clothes and shoes I have to try on though, I’m just not comfortable buying online (unless I can return to a local store, of course).
Q2.) Has school started where you are? It started on Wednesday here in Charleston county, but some people started on Monday.
Q3.) What’s your favorite “kid food” to enjoy as an adult? Aside from the Chobani Champions yogurts, I like some kid cereals (the super sweet ones, hehe). I also like the Clif Z-Bars more than the adult ones (probably because they’re smaller and easier to carry along in my purse).
